just returned from yemen. you had talks with the president of yemen. is the united states going to have direct involvement there, in other words, troops on the ground or launching strikes from inside yemen? >> well, in fact, you taukd to the yemeni foreign minister, as well, and he was quite clear that yemen does not want to have american ground troops there and that's a good, good response for us to hear, certainly. >> wonderful ground troops there. >> no, of course, we would always want a host nation to deal with a problem itself. we want to help, we're providing assistance so we're going to provide more assistance in the course of this year than we did last year and after i think having zeerode it out back, if you recall, '08. this is an effort that we want to help them to deal with a problem that threatens their very rid of government and their very existence as you know it. >> you talk about providing more aid. from what i can gather, aide w increased by $2 trillion in 2008 and 2010. you said when you were there it was going to double this year or next year. is that going to happe
, the house of representatives is the greatest society of frequent flyers in the entire united states, so they obviously understood personally, in a way that, you know, not everybody would, what it's like to be an an airline and have somebody lighting up next to you, so we worked very closely with all of these groups. they mobilized their grassroots entities, they all -- who all were incredibly effective aft contacting people in their states, who then contacted their members and the tobacco industry, this is -- this issue, it happened -- took place such a long time ago, so things are very different than they are now, but the tobacco industry strongly opposed to this. members who represented tobacco industry strongly opposed this, and it was a huge struggle, and he offered the amendment on the floor, we ended up winning by a very small majority, but i think it was really good example of how, you know, one member, pretty junior member really, working with a very effective grassroots coalition, with strong ties in d.c., and also we also had a very, very good piece of scientific information t
the united states is with regard to health care costs. you might think we spend a lot because we are rich. that is not the case at all. on the vertical asked -- access, we have how much we spend per person. and then on the vertical ac xes we have a much the country spends -- how rich the country is. the u.s. spends about twice as much per person as other countries do on health care. we are 56% higher than the swiss. why are costs high are here? this is what i will be focusing on. there are economic, political, historical ones. i have come up with a list of four reasons why i think health care costs are higher in the united states than elsewhere. a lack of consolidation of purchasing power, medical technology and specialization, paying for unnecessary care and fee-for-service medicine. i am only going to talk about the first one of these. i will leave the others at the end because john skinner will talk about the other three in his talk. to understand lack of consolidation, take a counter example which would be canada. canada has a single payer system. there is only one buyer of care in ca
are not grounded in prejudice and at the time the republican president of the united states said the senator should go as well. >> shannon: the democrats say there is no way you could probably compare the two situations. here is what robert gibbs said about trying to equate reid's remarks to lotts. >> i would suggest they spend about 20 seconds reading a little history and figuring out that to draw that analogy strains any intellectual enterprise. >> shannon: from the other side of the aisle we have texas senator john cornen who said it is difficult to see the situation as anything other than a clear double standard on the part of senate democrats and others. democrats expressed outrage at senator lott and called on him to step down as leader. the same standard should be applied to senator reid and his embarrassing and racially insensitive statements. >> shepard: shannon, good to see you, thank you. >>> the fort hood incident. before it they questioned his confidence and behavior and questioned his highwayialty to our nation. but military doctors still gave positive evaluations of dr. nadalp.hasan.
of what passed united states senate. the number may go higher, we simply don't know. more on that in the moment. one of my democrat colleagues spoke out in a post bill in the house of representatives, i quoted. during the florida debate. he said the last thing you do in a recession is raise taxes and that's what this bill does. in the midst of the worse recession in 25 years just makes no sense. and yet, it's at the very center of this bill. and millions of americans will actually also lose the health insurance that they currently have. if this bill were to become law. one of the assurances the president has given the american people is if you like the insurance you have you can keep it. well, apparently administration wasn't talking about medicare advantage when they referred that. the bills in the house and senate include massive cuts in the medicare advantage program. and so people that have med can care advantage have vin vative new private insurance available for million office seniors and me digap policy. but also recognizing that the business of creating the massi
know is pending in the united states senate. it's not only essential to those who are making good-faith effort to find work. but a direct spark to local economies. and the bill will help us build roads, lay tracks, upgrade water systems and more. some of the best ways to create good-paying jobs. building needed infrastructure. it is crucial to get a jobs bill to the president's desk as soon as possible and to continue to search out the most innovative ideas from economists, small businesses and communities to create jobs and strengthen the middle class. including those initiatives just laid out by the white house's middle class task force. creating jobs is priority number one. at the same time, however, we must deal effectively with our exploding debt. in the last administration fiscal denial turned a surplus into record deficits. on today's right, fiscal denial decries the deficit while pleading for more debt-financed tax cuts. meanwhile, the country is rightfully worried that washington is spending too much money. democrats get it. and we will do something about it. our country
heard screaming for help across the region. haiti's ambassador to the united states told katie couric on evening news tonight that the damage is significant and that haiti the world's most impoverished needs the world's help. a tsunami watch is in effect right now for haiti, cuba, the bahamas and the dominican republic. most communications are down but first-hand reports are hard to come by. that said, we have been able to get in touch with joel trimble, a missionary in the town of thomason in haiti. can you describe the scene for us, sir. >> in is the worst decimation i have ever seen. i have never seen anything in haiti in the 34 years i have been here to this effect. the house i'm in on the mott rocked. i thought it was going to fall over. the vehicle in the driveway was rocking like there was five guys trying to push it over and now there is a cloud of dust over the city of port-au-prince. >> shepard: you went out on a motorcycle after the initial quake. there have been a number of aftershocks to follow, but you went out on a motorcycle. tell us what you saw, place to place? >> lo
ways they are an accurate portrayal of the state of politics in the united states. >> you say it's fairly accurate. what about it is accurate? >> that if you go back to something that a columnist for the new york times wrote several weeks ago, basically whites in the united states were willing to vote for a black candidate who was, quote/unquote, racially ambiguous. that's what charles blow said. that puts blacks in a quandary in terms of how do you talk about race in you can't talk about it directly because when you talk about it directly, as reid did, you find yourself thrown in the briar patch. >> tony, what about the use of the word "negro" a term my parents may use but usually people of our generation don't. the fact that he went on to say "when he wants to" almost saying that when he wants to, barack obama can maybe talk jive. >> let me start by saying i don't think people generally should have their careers ended because they say something that is dumb or seems to be dumb. whether you're a republican or democrat, liberal or conservative. no like what we have been doing ove
, and politics here in the united states. let's begin our coverage with dana bash. lots of emotion on this issue. >> that's right. the immediate question was, will senator reid step down, making calls, first of all, he said he won't, and making calls to democrats around town, especially in the senate. it seems as though there's no movement for him to do that, but reid, look, he's not a leader who is known as an orator, he's known for back-room dealing, and he has a big reservoir of support among senate democrats, but his advisers are still worried, they tell me, about the political fallout from this. that is why today he came out again for damage control. at home in nevada, harry reid's clean-energy event turned into an attempt to clean up a political event. >> i've apologized to the president, i've apologized to everyone within the sound of my voice that i could have used a better choice of words. >> those words reported in the new book "game change" saying then senator obama could get elented president, because -- reid tried to put his own explosive quotes in context, recounting his early priv
states, to the united kingdom, might have been relying on those stocks that i'm in, some of those shells, for sample, would use as improvised explosive devices, without any understanding of what was in the shelter those shells were being used by some of the insurgents, in the aftermath of the invasion. as i say, without understanding what the work and i'm not suggesting for a moment that they were of recent production. that they were there and clearly and store presumably in barracks and armories that were looted in the immediate aftermath of the invasion. >> so it took you a while. until the report of the survey group? >> yes, i think that was when it began to be clear that this was not the case. again, one of the issues that i've never quite understood, i think it's a straightforward issue, is why it's iraq, saddam, did not have access to the stocks, did he spend such an enormous amount of time and effort in trying to forestall the work of the expected that there isn't an entirely satisfactory answer to that that i'm aware of the. other than i have speculated as to whether, for example

, clearly the united states is sending a strong message to the taliban, getting a bit of its own revenge. but the reality is that the united states has to rely on these advanced predators against a force that has no air force of its own. no advanced artillery and no satellite intelligence. and eight years after this conflict began the united states is having difficulty holding its own. >> and robin, we knew you were in beirut the last time the cia was attacked in this scope. you heard what the security director said, did you see a breakdown s this simply the risk that they face? >> well, clearly it's the risk they face. i think leon panetta is right. the reality is, 27 years after the first attack wiped out almost an entire cia station, the united states should have known better. this is a counterintelligence failure. >> robin wright, thank you. >>> meantime, the families of the fallen cia officers are now laying their loved ones to rest. in many cases these families had no idea the men and women they lost were working the front lines for cia. here's david kerley. >> reporter: it is a si

is not the only spouse in this united states house of representatives who loves to watch c-span at all hours of the day and night because they are so unbiased and cut to the chase and treat people fairly and take questions from republicans, democrats and independents and it's no nonsense, it's just the facts, ma'am, sir. c-span tell advises many of the things we do in this chamber and in the committee process. brian lamb who has been with c-span, probably president and c.e.o. who has been there 20 years wrote a letter just recently to the president of the united states. and mr. speaker, here's the letter from c-span to the house and senate leadership. c-span requests that you open all important negotiations, including any conference committee meetings, to electronic media coverage. so the american people can see, can connect the dots, can understand about the louisiana purchase, can understand about the nebraska compromise or is it the corn husker compromise in which it seems to a lot of people out there on main street that maybe nebraska got the corn and everybody else got the husks. that's
talks in new with united states wants north what is the position? >> i think if you go back to the discussion last month that ambassador stephen wadsworth and ambassador studentcam had in the john gone and both sides reaffirmed who the september september 2005 with a joint statement but if you go down the joint statement during number of elements outlined their. talks about the establishment of peace regime, normalization of relations among all of the parties concerned, an economic and energy cooperation. we've made clear is that we are -- if north korea says yes and comes back to the six party process, it makes a firm step toward normalization, then a wide range of other opportunities open up, but the first key here is that north korea has to come back to us, say yes and come back to the six preprocessor, start working on -- its obligations under the join communication statements and then when we're perfectly willing to have other talks. >> before the sixth party talks, what is the u.s. position? >> our position is we want to see north korea come back to the six party proce

connell saying that about an african-american candidate for president of the united states, trust me, this chairman and the dnc would be screaming for its head very much as they were with trent lott. >> trent lott was forced to step down as senate majority leader back in 2002, after saying in a public speech essentially the country would have been better off if voters elected strom thurmond in 1998. let's dig deeper with our panel. joining me, soledad o'brien. roland martin. senior political daily writer for the daily beast. wrote an interesting piece about this on the daily beast. if the republican had said this would people be freaking out more? >> absolutely. look, let's be honest about it. there is a double standard. here is the difference when you begin to dig deeper. that is you look at a person's history. you look at also what they said and the context of what they said. and so if you're talking about senator trent lott, when you look at the comment, america would have been better off had he been elected, he ran on a segregation ticket as a dixiecrat. you hear that comment, it

without some of the concerns that you might have as an american citizen in the united states who was under arrest for robbing a convenience store or something strikes me as a pretty wrongheaded way to conduct a war. i am troubled by that and i hope that the administration will move in the direction of clearing up this confusion. i have found from top to bottom in iraq concern among military people about this state of confusion with regard to a detention and attainment. -- detainment. >> i share senator mcconnell concerns. it was very clear that there was uncertainty among our military personnel as to how they are required now and going to be required in the future to deal with the handling of detainees. i wanted to make several points. first, it was very clear that the morale of our troops is very high. we have a tremendous fighting force in afghanistan and a very, very committed american soldiers who are doing their job. one of the impressive things i noted was where our troops have moved into a region. they have been successful in achieving their objective so far. their first objective w
, this is an effort an undertaking with the fall, a total, unrelenting support of the president of the united states and the united states government. we are moving this as quickly as is possible. we are moving aggressively, with all assets available to this gunman. we are saving lives and beginning a recovery. but to put this in focus, there is one airport. the entire world is trying to get help. we are only able to land because of one apron in the airport, one taxiway, 28 aircraft a day from all over the world. that includes the united nations trying to resupply their people. that includes the ability to refurbish and try to get back on its feet 7000 folks on the ground. we're able to get yesterday 17 airframes. we have capacity for 700. so i want the american people to understand that we are here in the position of trying to help another country, going by, as we should, their priority. they are telling us what they want is first. so the first question is why didn't you send in 81st airborne? because we're being told that now what we need, and we know what they need. search and rescue teams. if se

the country, whether julian bond, a call i got coming to the facility, attorney general of the united states, eric holder. anyone you want me to talk to, i'll be happy to do that. i've spent over the last couple of weeks working through health care. i spent a long time with him yesterday. we have a lot of work to do. i'll continue to do my very best for the state of nevada and the people of this country. i got a call last night, i was surprised he was up this late, from secretary salazar. he said, harry, you make sure you tell everybody you have done more for diversity in the united states senate than all the rest of the people put together. that's where we are. i'm going to move forward and help get health care done in the next couple of weeks. >> richard and jonathan, i want to take this broader. are we kidding ourselves, other people not in the same wording did not say similar things about barack obama when he was running and that he is an african-american who could be seen as someone who could assimilate and be comfortable for whites. >> they have been saying this all over time. they use
improper comments." shortly after that, barack obama of course now the president of the united states, came out with his own statement where he says as far as i'm concerned, the book is closed. and many other african-american leaders have come out backing harry reid saying perhaps this was a poor word choice but citing harry reid's work in civil rights legislation and civil rights on the judiciary, african-americans on the judiciary in nominations that have come through the senate saying harry reid deserves a second chance on this. mike steele is another african-american leader in this country, of course on the other side of the aisle as chairman of the rnc. this morning he says there is a double standard and that reid should step down. >> there is this standard where democrats feel that they can say these things and they can apologize when it comes from the mouths of their own, but if it comes from anyone else it is racism. it's either racist or it's not and it is inappropriate, absolutely. >> reporter: now all this comes as harry reid was already in a great deal of political trouble, alex
auction of votes with his health care legislation in the history of the united states of america. and i think that the decision with regard to senator reid will be made by the voters of nevada. >> it is interesting to note that senator mitch mcconnell, the top republican in the senate was also at that press conference today and deferred when asked about reid, he said that is something the democrats will have to decide. >> it's up to voters in the fall. can reid pull off a comeback? >> the folks who have watched nevada politics for a long time say he's a fighter, he absolutely can do it. we're ten, 11 months out. i talked to dave myers, a political reporter out there, here's what she said about reid's chances. >> i think he's going to have a tough fight. really, the election is ten months out, senator reid is a fighter. it's the narrative on him but it's true. he's known for coming back in the end. and usually elections are won and lost in the final weeks and months. >> and you know, there's that story line about him being a former boxer. they say he's not going down without a fight, he'
? senator reid apologizing in phone calls not just to the president of the united states but to other african american officials and leaders. he talked to the reverend al sharpton who has slammed similar comments in the past. reverend sharpton joins us on the telephone. he is in st. louis where he is out on the road. good morning. thanks for being with us on the fox news channel. >> good morning, eric. >> what did the senator say to you in the phone call? >> well, he said that he regretted his remarks and he profusely apologized and he said that he clearly felt what he said was wrong and i told him i felt the use of the word negro dialect was certainly offensive but i think we have to look with the other point that he was bringing out and that is the comfort level of some american voters. i think what his analysis of what he felt then senator obama who ultimately won would appeal to voters and i think that that was no different than any number of commentators that have said that because senator obama was nonthreatening that he could appeal to different voters. >> are you saying that s
that we don't have today. the rest of the world is not waiting around for the united states to act. countries are busy making their own arrangements. with each other and leaving us in the dust, we all know about the political pressure against trade coming from some of our unions. but there is no excuse for america to take a back seat to global leadership and trade. washington is sitting on pending trade agreements with south korea, colombia and panama. if we fail to pass them, we will not only miss opportunities to create new jobs, we will lose a large number of existing jobs. south korea, for example, is ready to proceed with a free trade agreement they have negotiated with the e.u. if the europeans go ahead and we believe they would, about mid year, while we continue to delay, and a very legitimate study, estimated that 350,000 more americans will lose their jobs. with millions of americans already desperate for work, how could any member of congress or the administration sit by and allow this to happen. we must also modernize our export controls, which today caused us billions i
